• Facility Use Information

    The Hanover Community School Corporation encourages community use of school facilities when such use is in the public interest, does not conflict with school activities, and is not detrimental to the purpose of schools. Residents, staff members, and community groups can make facility use requests by following the steps below:

    All facility use requests are completed online. The first step needed to make an online facility use request is to create an ML Schedules user account. You can do so by clicking the icon to the left. Be sure to complete all information fields and then click the submit button. If your registration was successful you will receive an e-mail confirmation. The links below will provide additional information if needed:
     Once your account is created you can start making facility reservations using ML Schedules. Click the icon to the left to reach the Log In screen. The video below will further explain the reservation process as will the Community User Quick Start Guide:


    Any school-sponsored groups such as in-school clubs, in-school events, PTO/PTSO and Booster Clubs will now complete the Hanover Community School Corporation Internal Facility Usage Form at the building level instead of Request for Use of School Facilities Form 7510A.


    The Use of School Facilities form (for outside groups) must be submitted to the Superintendent’s office to ensure that it has been completed properly and insurance is attached. The secretary will then forward the request to the appropriate building principal for perusal and approval. That form is to be returned to the Superintendent's office for further signatures.


    Once all signatures are garnered, the request will be submitted for Board of School Trustees’ approval at its regular meeting that is usually held the second Tuesday of the month. Therefore, the Request for Use of School Facilities Form needs to be submitted in a timely manner (at least two (2) weeks prior to a Board meeting) in order to obtain all of the signatures and be presented to the Board.


    Anyone who would like to request facility usage prior to Board meeting approval will need to attach to the request formal documentation requesting approval for usage. After the Superintendent reviews the request, the requestor will be contacted of the approval/disapproval.


    A Site Supervisor may be assigned to an event. The charge for that supervision is $15.00 per hour. A custodian will also be assigned and may be billed for each event at a rate of $25.00 per hour.


    Damage to schools and misuse of the facilities has been caused by some groups. Please be advised that if misuse and/or damage that does occur, we will take appropriate steps to charge accordingly, and may deny the group from using our facilities in the future.
